Is this what Trump derangement sufferers are doing to do from now on? take any word out of his statement and says its racist or insensitive or insulting? For example if he talks about a Face the Nation interview he had at one time are they going to accuse him of saying black face is okay? Or if he says hes got an itch are they going to say he called a female a bitch? After all it is incredible a huge stretch to say Trump was mocking the trail of tears from his tweet because trail was in all caps.



Anyone with a brain in their head can clearly tell that the only thing he mocked in this tweet was Warrens previous claim of being native American and that the only trail he talked about was the campaign trail.

Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2019

The president's use of the word trail in all caps is a potential reference to the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of Native Americans from their homelands in the Southern United States to reservations in Oklahoma in the 1800s.
He's afraid of her traction because he's working for the guys who just got him to get rid of the consumer protection agency that she fought for even to get obama to put in. Once again loan sharks can lend money at 40%
Congratulations on your grafter President.

First, the racism claims are old and tired. When everything is racist, nothing is racist. Racism accusations are what libs do when they have no legit debate material.

Second, Pocahontas has ruined any chance she had of winning the lib nomination. She is gonna get destroyed by her false claims of being Native American and the fact she listed her race as Native American on her Texas bar registration card (or whatever the hell it was). Intelligent libs (yes, there's a few) will find that to be an automatic disqualifier.

The largest Indian Trail is called the "Great Trail...

Quote:
The Great Trail (also called the Great Path) was a network of footpaths created by Algonquian and Iroquoian-speaking indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of European colonists in North America. It connected the areas of New England and eastern Canada, and the mid-Atlantic regions to each other and to the Great Lakes region. Many major highways in the Northeastern United States were later constructed to follow the routes established thousands of years ago by Native Americans moving along these trails.
So Trump is clearly equating the word "Trail" to the generic and widely used term "Indian Trail", and only people looking for victimhood would make a stupid implication that he was not only specifically meaning one "trail" in particular, but the most negative one they can imagine...

...and that IS quite an imagination...

The only flaw in that arguement is that Trump did not say Indian Trail.He said campaign trail.

My initial reaction to the word TRAIL, in all caps, was as in BEHIND.... where Warren would be if she continues to pursue a run at the POTUS.

Apparently you automatically assume the worse scenario, base on previous bias. Trump could **** rainbows, and you would have a problem with it.

And the thought to leave you with for the day, have you ever considered that you are reacting just as Trump wants? That the whole point to his agitating is to watch Democrats and Liberals as they jerk and twitch?

Go look at Trumps twitter. He has a habit of putting words in all caps that don't need to be. Because he's an idiot that way and doesn't have a firm grasp on how written language works.

Democrats will ascribe to Trump the worst possible motive they can come up with for whatever he says or does. Even if there is no way to possibly know that.

I would have an easier time believe he was mocking the Trail of Tears if he had said something like, "See you in TEARS on the campaign TRAIL".

The most I can give the Dems on this one is that maybe, he was referencing the trail of tears. But that's a big maybe that you simply can not prove. It's just as likely that he wrote "trail" in all caps because he looks forward to campaigning against her. Or because his caps key got stuck on and he couldn't figure out how to turn it off.

The truth is Dems are so ready to melt down over anything and to be a victims that anything he says is views as racist and mocking. My opinion, if I was an American Indian I would find Warren's claims to be Indian far more offense than the president capitalizing the word "trail".
